You might have seen NASCAR driver Scott Lagasse, Jr., flash across your TV with the BSA in February, but tonight you’ll get to see the racer sporting the iconic BSA logo alongside a new program that’s been sparking lots of excitement for Scouts and parents across the country. You guessed it, the BSA pilot program STEM Scouts will take center stage tonight across Lagasse, Jr.’s race car for the Toyota Tundra 250 at Kansas Speedway, and you won’t want to miss it.

“I’m excited to welcome STEM Scouts for their first race as it is a perfect fit with our racing program,” said Lagasse, Jr. “Everything we do is about STEM and it’s great to be able to share our excitement for the sport with future professionals. The BSA is right on target and is hitting it out of the park with this program.” 

Catch the pre-race show tonight, Friday, May 8 at 8 p.m. Eastern Time on Fox Sports 1 and stay tuned for the race going live at 8:30 p.m. You can also hear the event live on MRN Radio and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. 

 

Reminder about BSA Racing

The BSA Racing program is a royalty-free arrangement, meaning that thanks to the generous support of Scott Lagasse Racing, there’s no cash investment from the BSA. Instead, the BSA lists supporters as national sponsors in its promotional materials — that’s it.
